Looks good, Ken. OK, what's the gismo on the small tripod?

looks good, I would put some plugs in it asap, very easy for something to get into the cylinder, I would run a tap in there too if you painted it with the plugs out

The sharp eye from members of this forum noted the following which have been corrected.

1. The Bolster Bolts were in backwards compared to photos in service manuals. They have been reversed.
2. The governor control linkage to the carburetor was installed with the clevis at the carb - I was wondering why the pin was too short. This too has been corrected.

Enough Cubbing it for today - Been working with one hand as I sprained my right wrist yesterday working on the barn.

Thanks Glen...

Best regards to all, Ken

And they missed #3 "got the radiator installation sequence wrong" :shock: let's see gasket, radiator, THEN bolts :wink: :D

By the way, I don't think the governor rod is wrong; you just have the tractor pointing the wrong way :lol:

Looks F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C you should be very proud of your progress.
